I was unaware that Dr. Joe Heck of Nevada is the first emergency physician to be elected to Congress. Good for him! From the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP):
In one of the closest congressional races of 2010, Republican challenger and ACEP member Dr. Joe Heck upset Rep. Dina Titus in Nevada’s third Congressional District. Dr. Heck is the first ACEP member and emergency physician to be elected to Congress.
I suppose that leaves me to be the first for the Senate…
